In fact, the only reason I'm not giving this episode 5 stars is that there is no closed captions. I'm not deaf, but I am hard of hearing. And I know several people who are D/deaf. And I cannot recommend this episode to them, because it would be impossible for them to follow the story.
If I can't recommend this episode to all my friends, I can't give it five stars.
What's really baffling about this is that the trailer had captions. It just makes no sense. I hope this is not a harbinger of things to come for Series 10. :-(
I have to echo the other reviewer about there being no closed captions!! Cannot understand why so many Amazon shows from BIG networks and production companies that are mandated to close caption, yet their streaming videos do not have close captioning. I am hearing impaired and appreciate being able to use CC so I do not wake everybody when watching a show with my headphones blasting. I know BBC mandates their shows so get with it Amazon on this and your other shows. Not only deaf people like CC, but many hearing people to facilitate watching shows.
Nardole tells Lucy and Grant, "He's very brave and he's very silly. And I think for a time he's going to be very sad. But I promise, in the end he'll be all right."
But that's getting ahead of this year's story. Lucy and Grant live in New York City, in the 2nd story above Joe's Pizza. The bespectacled Grant is Lucy Fletcher's nanny. He's met the Doctor before, 25 years before, when he accidentally swallowed the Doctor's prize gem, giving him super powers. It's going to take the combined efforts of his super hero alter ego, "The Ghost", and the Doctor to stave off the latest alien invasion.
This story was meant to fit the American classic comic book story into the world of Dr Who. I think it does a good job of that. Unfortunately, the comic book part of it is not very fresh and even the jokes were not as funny as usual. 3.4 stars rounded down to 3, a first for me on the rebooted Dr Who franchise.
"The Return of Doctor Mysterio" originally aired in December, 2016, a Christmas Special. It is a little less than 60 minutes long. If you buy it on BluRay/DVD, English SDH subtitles are available on both the feature episode and the two Special Features.
...A..."A New Kind of Hero" (7 minutes) "Let's explore what kind of hero the Doctor really is." Commentators include Peter Capaldi (plays the Doctor), Steven Moffat (writer and producer), Charity Wakefield (plays Lucy), Justin Chatwin (plays Grant) and 'Tomiwa Edun (plays Mr Brock).
This feature includes clips from prior Peter Capaldi episodes. Such as when the decrepit Davros tells the Doctor, "I approve of your new face, Doctor. So much more like mine."
...B..."Doctor Who Extra" (25 minutes) Commentators include those in Feature A, plus Ed Bazalgette (director) and Hayley Nebauer (costume designer).
I enjoyed the look at how they filmed the Doctor swinging upside-down outside Grant's window. The stunt man did the hard part. Peter's part was lying on his back with a wind machine and the camera swinging back & forth above him.
Trivia, related by Chatwin, the Joe's Pizza here was also used in 'Spider Man'."
Coming in Season 10!
"Are you out of your mind?"
The Doctor: "Yes, completely. But that's not a recent thing!"
One question though: I purchased this digital copy using my Amazon ipad App. It came with the epsode plus several great bonus features. I've enjoyed them all but I can only watch the bonus feature from my ipad. If I use the PS4 Amazon app, the bonus features aren't there. Does anyone else have this problem?
